hand of welcome

Hand of Welcome
"... freed from the slavery of corruption into
the freedom of the children of God." Romans 8:21
You stretch forth
Your Hand of Welcome, and
Guide me to Your Land --
Of glory and freedom.
This is Your Will.
Your Hands
Lift me from under the heel of sin,
A gnawing and withering world,
Of pride, with it's prison,
Of greed, with it's worry,
Of lust, with it's hangover,
Of anger, with it's wreck.
This is not Your Will.
For, when I surrender to Your Will,
Harsh-days go,
Gloom-days go,
Lonely-days go,
For the grace of Your Will
Is soul-quiet.
This is Your hope for me,
As a Father loves his child.
Thank You.
